Curriculum Vitae (updating)



Simón De Agüero’s elegant constructs appear as tent-like canopies or translucent vertical and horizontal intersections lightly tethered to the landscape like atmospheric currents.  His work redefines space in subtle ways that combine elements of both architecture and sculpture. De Agüero approaches fabric as a delicate building material, constructing spatial relationships that beautifully integrate his interests in architecture (he holds a Master of Architecture degree from The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture), sculpture, and design.   His structures, often made of fabric in combination with adobe or other organic materials, suggest a nomadic, tenuous relationship with the environment, like clouds passing overhead.  For Simón studying, experiencing and designing quality spaces is a life long passion.

     Preparing a Historic Structures Summary Report for Tan-y-deri, Taliesin in Spring Green, WI.
